In accordance with the new restrictions effective Tuesday, November 17, we remain open on our normal schedule.  No changes were made to our industry as massage therapy has not been shown to be a vector for spreading the virus.

 

We continue to follow our careful protocols.  We thank our clients for wearing masks at all times in our studio, and look forward to helping you manage stress and pain, the Elements Way.

How to Combat Stress this Holiday Season

How to Combat Stress this Holiday Season

Mackenzie Barrow

It’s a no-brainer that the holidays are stressful. It can be very easy to be swallowed up by it and forget to take care of yourself. But now more than ever it’s important to pencil in some self-care. Massage therapy can have a powerful impact on those suffering from stress, depression, and anxiety this holiday season.

Massage has been shown to:

  • Lower oxygen consumption, blood pressure, and salivary cortisol levels
  • Decrease heart rate, systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure
  • Reduce trait anxiety with a course of treatment providing benefits similar to psychotherapy
  • Reduce depression in those with high blood pressure

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, try booking a massage to help bring you back to center.
